Hi, my name is Colt! I am a friendly, 6-year-old Welsh terrier who loves people and gets along with other dogs. My parents adore me and are heartbroken to have to give me up, but recently a two-legged toddler moved in with us and we are not exactly seeing eye to eye, to put it mildly. So I need a new home.
People call me a happy-go-lucky dog” who loves to play with toys and balls…and yes I bring them back to you so you get to play too! I’m pretty chill around the house for a terrier, I’ll relax when you do, but up for a game or walk anytime you’re willing to join me!
One thing my people have to know… I’m happy to share my food and toys, but I do like to be left alone when sleeping or resting. I can get pretty snippy about that! Also, I’m not fond of manhandling, which is why the two-legged toddlers and I could not cohabitate. So while I like a good cuddle on my terms, I appreciate not being forced to cuddle, grabbed or startled. Not crazy about paws grabbed or being picked up suddenly either. Heck, no one is perfect, right? I’m ready to join your life if you will have me!!!”
Cole is going to need a no-children home after what he has experienced, and a terrier savvy owner who can use positive methods to work on body handling skills with him to overcome his fear of being touched or grabbed without notice. He really does need a fenced back yard to play in. He is house trained and does not have accidents in his current home, but as with all our adopted dogs, we request you show him the correct place to potty at your home for a day or two. We are looking for someone who can drive to Dallas to pick him up if not in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Please put in an application to Kathi O’Malley or Amy Word (see the drop-down box on the application). The adoption applications (link) can be found under the rescue tab on this website or follow this link WTCARES adoption form link
